about: Ljubljana, conference theme, the logo

The IASE, the International Association for Statistical Education, seeks to promote, support and improve statistical education at all levels everywhere around the world. It is the international umbrella organization for statistics education. It fosters international cooperation, and stimulates discussion and research. It disseminates ideas, strategies, research findings, materials and information using publications, international conferences, and its website. IASE is the education section of the International Statistical Institute (ISI), but may also be joined independently by those who wish to participate in IASE’s activities, or simply to support the work on improving statistics education and extending its outreach.

The International Conference on Teaching Statistics (ICOTS) is held every four years in different parts of the world. This conference is organized by the IASE. The main purpose of ICOTS is to give statistics educators and professionals around the world the opportunity to exchange information, ideas and experiences, to present recent innovation and research in the field of statistics education, and to expand their range of collaborators.

The 2010 Conference will be held in the city of Ljubljana, Slovenia. It will be organized in conjunction with the Statistical Society of Slovenia (SSS).
